In the short time since you exposed me to this one I've recommended this version to a few people who all agree Jerry's solo is the best and most intense they've heard on a JS.

GREAT review Skobud! I dig the artwork too.

cheers to that. I mean i'd love to find one even better than 1987-04-06, but it always holds up as the top dog. Just perfect execution from the entire band.

hey have you ever listened to any shostakovich? (i think i recall you talking about some symphony shit...?). Been listening to his string quartet number 8 a lot lately, its fucking awesome.

Best part is our favorite reviewer weighs in on this show:

Reviewer: jboyaquar - - June 8, 2005
Subject: Decent, but by no means an all-star night.
1st Set: So, it's the final "Dancin...," huh? Undeniably a surprise... this version is good-time chill but the vocals are thin, and the outro jam's ambition is non-existant. "Franklin"'s is well-played but again rather abrupt and lacks that dynamic construct. Jerry provides the inspiration for a standard "Rooster." "Peggy" has a comforting stroll. "Uncle"'s got an assertive backbeat, wish there was more spitfire in the vocals. "Mexicali" is professional, tho to Weire' credit, his rhythm is sounding crisp. "Push" is 'Push.' Blah. "Jack" promises some power and they deliver; Jerry's casacading climactic drive is wonderful. "Deal" segues in on a high, but only continues in standard fashion.

2nd Set: "Stranger," uh-oh...I sense a '1st set songs thrown in 2nd set' feel tonight. Ideally these songs would be extended cause they're being reserved for the meat of the gig. Too bad these ideals are rarely realized. "Stranger" is muted, "Cumberland" is sung without urgency and the music's bland. Yay, "Tons..." ehhhh... Wow, a "Saint" too... Geez, they are determined to shush up this Meadowlands crowd. Face it, 'Saint' always opens awkwardly when not preceded by a 'Sailor.' There's some tense Jerry work building to the climax that Bobby kills by mistiming most of his yelps. After the requisite "Drums/Space," we're treated to a weakly sung "Terrapin," tho Mydland injects some intensity with his synths...This "OO" is rather jazzy but doesn't deviate far from the theme. "Stella"'s quite a fine version. "Sugar" is run of the mill, but the residue from "Stella" brings me to tears when Jerry chooses to encore with "Black Muddy." Just an incredible reservoir of warmth and humanity in those scracthy pipes of that cherubic man.

More of a 2 1/2 than three... But I've been told people will like you more if you slightly inflate what their fair grade should be.

... that cherubic man....

" blue" thanks so much for sharing the brilliance of jboyaur. I sense a power in the force I haven't felt since DSO played this show

And they played it better!

So, know anyone that wants to buy a Captain Beefheart painting or the original artwork that Waiting for Columbus used and that the album was named after? They took the title from the artwork. Looking...
